2017-11-24 World Music of Gratitude and Blessing

gratitudeOn the day after the USA celebrates Thanksgiving Day, we’ll keep the gratitude flowing with songs of praise and gratitude from around the world. Plus other uplifting tunes. Apologies for not getting finding a global version of “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing” into the mix, as a listener requested. Does anyone know of a “world music” version on that tune?

2010-11-26 Music of Gratitude

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday…despite the general overconsumption of food, the day is about gratitude for family, friends, and other blessings. It cuts across religious and ethnic lines, and is something we can celebrate together. Despite everything, there’s a lot to be grateful for. And this upbeat, family-friendly, positive-message show is the soundtrack to a day of gratitude over greed. Enjoy. Pumpkin pie with knife
